A velvety, robust and fruit driven Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep crimson red with ruby red hues, black cherry, liquorice and leather aromas. The cherry notes carry through to the palate along with hints of spice and dark chocolate. The tannins are soft and velvety.
Timely rain and an Indian Summer slowed the pace of ripening allowing flavours and tannin structure to develop. The resulting harvest meant smaller berries of intense flavour and colour, along with excellent tannins and natural acidity.
7-10 day fermentation in stainless steel fermenters, temperature range between 22-28 degrees. Fermenters are pumped over routinely 6 times a day.
Combination of French and American oak hogshead barrels for a minimum of 12 months.
